    Don’t open your door, especially late at night. And if you come to the door, do so armed. Unfortunately this kind of thing happens too often.

    If someone has “car trouble”, tell them you’ll be glad to call 911 through the closed door and have the police come help them out. If they really have “car trouble” they shouldn’t mind the assistance.
